"Mormon Boy" Confesses
At Boston Theatre Works

Boston Theatre Works will present the Boston premiere of Steven Fales’ award- winning and critically-acclaimed Off-Broadway hit, "Confessions of a Mormon Boy" from April 25 - May 19 at the Boston Center for the Arts Plaza Theatre.

The autobiographical, 90 minute one-man show tells the story of how one “perfect” Mormon fell out of favor with the Mormon Church and rose to grace as an out and proud gay man via the seedy underside of the New York City streets. Tony Award-winner Jack Hofsiss ("The Elephant Man," "The Shadow Box") directs.

Steven Fales was the ideal Mormon boy: an Eagle Scout, international missionary, BYU graduate, married in the Salt Lake Temple and father of a beautiful boy and girl. But what is to become of this model Mormon when his attempts to overcome "same-sex attraction" through "reparative therapy" don’t work?

For Fales it was a heart-wrenching journey through divorce and excommunication from the church, which led him into the gay underworld of escorting and drugs in New York City. "Confessions of a Mormon Boy" is the saga of this Latter-day prodigal son as he struggles to reclaim himself, his children and his  "Donny Osmond smile."

A breakout hit during the 2004 New York International Fringe Festival, for which the play received a coveted Overall Excellence Award, "Confessions of a Mormon Boy" also received a New York Outer Critics Circle Award Nomination for Outstanding Solo Performance.
